Your luxury Surf Coaching break in Cornwall will be spent nestled in a tranquil secret valley, surrounded by woodlands and beautiful walks (on and off the coastline) in magical 

Mawgan Porth. Surrounded by lush greenery, just a short 300 yard walk to the beach, you'll be staying in our luxury lodge. There are shared and private room options available with all the creature comforts and beautiful communal spaces with rustic log burner. 

You'll be prepared 3 healthy daily meals by our amazing private chef, to nourish and energise the body before and after a surf. With snacks and drinks available throughout the day. 

You'll start the day with an energetic yoga flow with Amanda, to get you ready for hitting the waves. Yoga compliments surfing perfectly... and it doesn't matter if you haven't done any yoga before just ask Alan, he loves his yoga!

Then unwind in the evening with Yin or Restorative Yoga to stretch out those muscles and restore the mind and body, before a delicious home cooked meal, leaving you feeling nourished from the inside out and ready for the following days surfing.

After a freshly prepared breakfast, 3 x British Champion Professional Surfer Alan Stokes will take you to one of his favourite spots, Mawgan Porth beach (a remote surf spot and hidden gem) to hit the waves. Alan  considers 

this beach as one of the best surf beaches in Cornwall and refers to it as a "swell magnet". He says this beach "draws in the swell and creates an energy in the waves to deliver the perfect high performance wave for progressing your surfing" this is why Alan chooses to coach surfing here.

You'll be going through everything from how to read the waves, surf reports, to in the water surfing techniques; dependant on where you are in  your surfing journey, Alan will provide you with feedback designed to improve and progress your skills to the next level, leaving you with tips and tools to take away from the this long weekend to practice in   your own 


You must be able to competently catch and ride white water waves standing up.

An opportunity not to be missed... Alan will leave you feeling inspired and excited about surfing... knowing all there is to know, having lived and breathed Surfing all his life!
